That is absolutely awesome. I dropped the ball on it for a few reasons (the 
main being that i simply have too much to do and couldn't work on it). 
Do you have any kind of roadmap or ideas about what you want to do with it? 
I  had some technical  issues not directly related to glucose that I never got 
to solving and I wanted to tackle those first (I think I'll send a separate 
email about that in a bit).

One thing I wasn't 100% convinced of was how well will it perform when going 
through whole OpenGL stack when doing simple (and small) blits or the like. 
It's not that I couldn't sleep because of it at night (I don't sleep for 
other reasons) but I was contemplating using DRI directly in those cases.
